Legislation To Restore Concealed Carry in National Parks Introduced

http://www.nraila.org/Legislation/Federal/Read.aspx?id=4714On Thursday, April 2, U.S. Senators Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Max Baucus (D-Mont.), Bob Bennett (R-Utah), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), and Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.) introduced legislation (S.816) to restore the Second Amendment rights of visitors in national parks and wildlife refuges (its companion bill, H.R. 1684 was introduced last week by Congressman Doc Hastings (R-Wash.). The current Department of the Interior (DOI) regulations were amended by the Bush Administration in 2008, allowing law-abiding citizens to defend themselves by carrying a concealed firearm in national parks and wildlife refuges. However, early this year, a federal district court in Washington, D.C. granted anti-gun plaintiffs a preliminary injunction against implementation of the new rule. The NRA has been working for the past several years in the regulatory, legal, and legislative arenas to achieve this policy change.

"NRA would like to thank this bi-partisan group of Senators for leading the legislative effort to strengthen Right-to-Carry laws on federal parklands. Senator Crapo has been at the forefront of this fight from the very beginning, along with Senator Baucus," said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox. "NRA is committed to changing the old, outdated rule, and will continue to work aggressively with Congress to pass this critical legislation. NRA will continue to pursue every avenue to defend the American people's right of self-defense."

This bill would provide uniformity across our nation's federal lands and put an end to the patchwork of regulations that governed different lands managed by different federal agencies. In the past, only Bureau of Land Management and Forest Service lands allowed the carrying of firearms, while National Parks and Wildlife Refuges did not.

This move will restore the rights of law-abiding gun owners who wish to transport and carry firearms for lawful purposes on most DOI lands, and will make federal law consistent with the state law in which these lands are located.

"This is a common-sense measure. Senators Crapo, Baucus, Bennett, Tester and Lincoln should be commended for their efforts to allow law-abiding gun owners the option of protecting themselves in our federal parks and refuges. This legislation will amend out-of-date regulations and restore the Second Amendment rights of American gun owners," concluded Cox.

Please be sure to contact your U.S. Senators and Representative and ask them to cosponsor and support S. 816 and H.R. 1684! You can call your U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121, and your U.S. Representative at (202) 225-3121.

Hey BO WTF? you post things that have no relevance to the topic and junk up almost every thread on here. Please keep it to the topic at hand.

Maybe if you stopped drinking the Messiah's Koolaid & trying to snow everybody on this forum that you are a second amendment supporter long enough to actually read and listen to my posts you would find the relevance to each and every thread....

OOOKKKKAYYY LOL I read our posts and many have good points then like this one you post a video about the English lady who lost her right to shoot in the Olympics........In a thread about trying to keep our rights in national parks....there is a very small amount of validity they both have to do with guns. LOL

Because I dont have the fervor you have does not make me less of 2nd supporter, I feel you and those like you that link to obscure and proven false items gives the other side credibility and hurts our cause.

So if BO posts off topic moronic outdated videos in a thread and I call him on it Im arguing?

It just seems that 98% of your posts appear to be finding something wrong with what others believe or post and when you disagree with everyone else they are morons. If you disagree with others that is fine. You are entitled to your opinion. Just remember opinions are one of two things we all have and both of them stink.

Sen. Blanche Lincoln [D-AR]
Sen. Jon Tester [D-MT]

One is the Senate bill and the other is the House bill. I guess that's why Senators are sponsoring one and Representaives are sponsoring the other. :yes2:

Once again, it is clear that you do not read or listen to any of my posts or others in their entirety, before showing your true blue color... pun intended...

For starters the video was not about an English lady whom lost her right to shoot in the Olympics, its about a entire country whom lost their right to possess firearms legally... further, about their warnings to America to not accept any infringement whatsoever of our right to keep and bear arms including but not limited to any form of firearm licensing, registration etc., as its ultimate goal is TOTAL FIREARM CONFISCATION!

Although, I am a long time Concealed Firearm Permit holder, I find it a Clear & Concise Infringement of the Second Amendment as written...

Remember, the guy whom wrote the Second Amendment? Thomas Jefferson? he always carried concealed, did he ever say "SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED" except if you do or do not have a Concealed Firearm Permit or that your said inalienable right was subject to be licensed and regulated by any Federal, State, City, County or other Municipality?

Exactly what have I linked to that is obscure, proven false or outdated?
